Mixon, who’s dealing with an ankle injury, missed Thursday’s practice after sitting out Wednesday. With him likely being inactive Sunday, the Bengals will be giving extended touches to veteran Samaje Perine and rookie Chris Evans.
Chidobe Awuzie was limited for a second-straight day, so he’s no lock to play Sunday. Fellow starting cornerback Trae Waynes was limited today with a hamstring issue after not being on the injury report Wednesday. Waynes injured both of his hamstrings in August and missed the first three regular-season games.
Trey Hopkins missed another practice with his knee issue after it was believed his Wednesday absence was only a veteran’s rest day. If Hopkins is out, rookie Trey Hill figures to make his first start at center, so this is a significant development to watch for Cincinnati against a stout Packers frontline.
Xavier Su’a-Filo got another DNP as he worked on the rehab field, so Jackson Carman is very likely to start at left guard for a third-straight game.
Tee Higgins was limited again with his shoulder issue. He should be good to go with a full session on Friday, but if he’s limited again, he’ll probably be questionable to play Sunday.
For Green Bay, star cornerback Jaire Alexander remains sidelined with a shoulder injury, so his chances of playing Sunday don’t look promising.
Starting center Josh Myers missed a second-straight practice with a finger injury.
Starting left tackle Elgton Jenkins was limited with an ankle issue after not practicing Wednesday.
